Craft room hideaway!

I forgot to take pictures of my craft room before I took everything out. Well here is the picture of what I took out from the room and is sitting on my living room floor. I guess you can say that I am a craft hoarder. My problem is that I do all kinds of crafts not just paper crafts but sewing, beading, crocheting you name I have it. I am slowly going through everything and trying to get rid of stuff. I also used to collect tons of bears of all kinds but got rid of most of it. You will see that I still kept some that I have on my shelf. When I get tired of it I will depart with them. It's a mess here in this picture but most of it is gone and put a way somewhat.
Here is the koa laminate desk that I helped my husband put together for my craft space. This was sooooo heavy to move and put together and hopefully this won't move for awhile. I wanted a desk where I could do my crafting and be able to place my sewing machine and serger on.
Here's the other corner where I installed some shelves for my Korean movie collection, books and Cricut and Silhouette machine and I also installed the rack for my punches. The counter and drawers also provides more space. I still need to get rid of the Iris drawers shown in the picture but I need to empty it first.

Below is my other wall of craft storage. I decided to put my things in see through containers so I know where things are. The right side are shoe boxes that I covered with assorted pink fabric a while back. I still got more to cover but will do them later when I have time. My craft room is still in it's transformation stage but I wanted to show you what I am working on right now. No crafting maybe for the next week. I am still in the process of trying to finish up the 190 explosion box invitations for my work. I need to have it done by the end of this month but still got lots to do.


I hope I didn't bore you with my craft room hideaway! I'm still trying to put things away and going through everything to see if I can get rid of things. Now that you have seen what my craft space looks like, how is your craft space? I was kinda embarrassed to show pictures of the mess but I'm trying to get organized here so it can be easily accessible. Thank you for stopping by and Have a Great rest of the week!

Wow Elena, I love your craft room already!
I know what you mean about doing all kinds of crafting, I'm the same way, I knit, sew, quilt, make jewelry, and of course I love making cards, bags and tags. So yes, we definitely need a home for all of our supplies and tools.
I always like seeing other peoples creative space; TFS.
Hugs to you.

Holy-moly Elena, you've got a craft store in your craft room LOL! How timely cuz I'm cleaning out and "trying" to reorganize my craft room and I still see no end to it LOL! I, too, have a love for anything hand crafted and have jewelry, sewing, beading and card making supplies all over the place! Funny tho', cuz as I put things away as I'm "reorganizing" ask me to make a card and now I can't find where I thought was the most logical place to put it hehehe. I'm a loser and a born hoarder! Your room looks so pretty and well organized. I'd be ashamed to show you mine! Hugs, Cami
